BUILDING CHARACTER

One of the primary benefits of boxing is gaining confidence. By developing skills in the ring and learning how to train properly to be in the right shape, athletes become confident in themselves. 

 

Along with confidence comes sportsmanship. Boxers learn not only how to be good losers, but also good winners. In the average gym, less than 1% of the athletes will become professional boxers, but all of them will learn the skills to become contributing members of society. The sense of self-worth that comes with achieving a higher skill level extends far beyond the ring.

Another positive outcome of an amateur boxing program is its influence on controlling anger and aggression. Boxing by design is a proven deterrent to anger and aggression problems. Athletes in a properly run boxing program learn that losing their temper or being overly aggressive is extremely counter-productive. An athlete soon learns that self-control is as important as being in good shape. We all know how important it is to have an effective way to control and positively direct aggression in today's youth.

Although the actual competition of amateur boxing is an individual sport, the boxer would not have any success without the support of the team of trainers, gym mates, sparring partners, and sponsors. Boxing is an individual sport that encourages the positive character attribute of self-motivation, however it also demonstrates the team effort and the importance of collaboration.

FAQs
  • Is there a contract associated with my membership?
    No, you can cancel at any time. Let us know 30 days in advance to pause or end your membership, this ensures us a enough time before your next billing cycle.
  • What can I expect on my first visit to Dyme?
    We're so glad you've decided to try out a class. All new youth classes are held every Saturday at 11:00am. Please create an account and sign up ahead of time through Zen Planner. Arrive 10 minutes early to meet your coach and get your hands wrapped. You can bring your own hand wraps or purchase them at the gym for $10.00. If you have boxing gloves, bring them as well, and if not, you can borrow some for your first visit. The session should last about an hour. Our coaches will work with you and guide you in your boxing form.
  • What if I don't know how to wrap my hands?
    No worries, your coach will help and teach you!
  • I don't want to fight or spar, is Dyme right for me then?
    Of course - we offer fitness and workout classes, along with sparring. You do not need to compete or participate in sparring. Boxing will consist of hitting the heavy bag and working with a partner, one on one. This is to improve form in your stance, punches, and overall boxing skill. We will always teach you to protect yourself, but will never put you in a position where you'll get hurt.
  • What if I don't have any equipment (gloves, wraps, etc)?
    Gloves and wraps are available to purchase at our gym. If you sign up as a member, there is a $50.00 one-time sign up fee that will cover the cost of gloves, wraps and a Dyme Boxing Jr. t-shirt. For example, if you sign up for our unlimited membership, you will pay $135.00 + $50.00 the first month, and each following will be the standard $135.00.
  • I'm looking to compete as a boxer, is Dyme the right spot for me to train?
